Whether you serve in the Army, Air Force or Navy, whether in a regular of Territorial capacity, here at Mortgage Required we recognise your very particular needs and we’re here to help.

In line with Government policy, we recognise that members of the armed forces have particular needs, different to those of us on civvie street. As a soldier, airman or sailor you are more likely to be posted abroad regularly and at short notice. You may have a relatively unusual address history with BFPO addresses scattered throughout your career. You may also have little in the way of deposit to put down if you have been renting or living on barracks for many years.

At Mortgage Required we decided we wanted to put a little something back and help our armed forces by doing what we do best - advising on the best mortgage available to you! See our Mortgages for Armed Forces Personnel.

The good news is that HM Government have also recognised the particular nature of a life in the forces and they have introduced a Help to Buy Scheme aimed at getting people like you onto the property ladder. We can also consider accessing pension lump sums or LSAP when buying your home.

In conjunction with lenders, specific mortgage products are now available with provision for the particular needs of armed forces personnel.

Specifically, they address the need for immediate permission to let when posted away, preferable rates of interest, Help to Buy from Government initiatives, mortgage protection, critical illness and Level Term Assurance. All this and more is now available through Mortgage Required - exclusively for armed forces personnel.

If you are looking to buy a new home (or perhaps purchase an existing council property) contact us for relevant and specific advice that will suit your special circumstances.

After all, it’s the least we can do. Thank you.
